Tough Job Choices

Orlando, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) -- As with any new job, the anxiety surrounding your performance is at the top of the list. But what if the obstacles to success force you to make decisions you’ve never encountered, or what if the job itself doesn’t match your expectations?

First, trust your gut, if you're ever in doubt about an offer, take time to mull it over.

Stand up for what you're worth, low pay is a sign of low respect. Ask for more, the worst that could happen is they say no, or yes. It can also help to research salaries for similar positions.

Don't take someone's crazy personality to heart,  if someone is imposing insane expectations, giving you zero room for growth, recognize that  and don’t personalize it. Fear of doing a poor job can affect performance.

Finally, know when to walk away; no job is worth your sanity. Stress and anxiety don't help performance in the long term.

Questioning your career path is normal, so make notes about realistic expectations and research companies that match your qualifications. Carrying these lessons to your next position can get you closer to the perfect job for your skills.
